I feel so betrayed, so forgotten.

I’ve known about the Marine Corps Ball for several weeks now. When I mentioned it a few weeks ago to my boyfriend, he said that he planned on asking me. Last night, I brought it up again because it was odd that it was a little bit over a week until the Ball and he had yet to ask me to go with him. His reply left me completely heartbroken. He told me that he never planned on taking me in the first place and that he had lied so that I wouldn’t be upset. Also, he had already asked another girl to go with him. My expression on the other end of the phone was a mixture of anger, shock, and sadness. The rest of the conversation spiraled into a horrible argument. I honestly don’t know how to deal with what I have just learned. This situation feels so hopeless.

If anyone has any advice for me, please share. I am not a judgmental person and am willing to hear both sides to any story.

I have so many unanswered questions…What have I done to deserve this kind of treatment? Am I not worthy enough for him to introduce to his friends? Does he believe it’s okay to lie to me? Why does he treat me this way if he claims that he loves me?
